I've had this T3i for possibly 2 years now and it's worked fine fo this whole time, I took it out to film for the day, and the next day it was acting a little different.
Some of the main things I noticed were:
Along with not being able to access settings, I can only see my LCD screen in Video, all other modes (aside from modes in 1, will show the name and this screen.) Until I press the display button, then it shows my live screen, but also mentions that it's not available in 'this mode', except it's in every mode.
Here's what I've tried to fix with:
Resetting to factory (didn't help)
Setting "LCD off/on BTN" to "Remains On"(All this did was allow me to see these screens in the modes from '1', if I don't have this selected, than my LCD remains black.
Running the sensor cleaning (no noticeable change).
It will still take pictures and save them to gallery, but I have almost 0 control over my LCD screen in multiple modes.
Does anyone here have any idea what could of happened, or how to fix this? I am 100% positive that dirt/water/debris didn't get into the machine, it's never been dropped or banged around, any ideas?
